Yacon Syrup from Quality Encapsulations - Review

products received free for review.

Hey guys! Have you ever heard of Yacon Syrup? I hadn't til recently.

I was actually watching Dr. Oz and he was talking about it. He was talking about how it can aid with weight loss. So I was immediately intrigued. Here's some info I found on his website:

How It Works:Yacon syrup is high in prebiotics, such as inulin and fructooligosaccharides (FOS). The concentration of FOS, which are sugars found naturally in many plants, is particularly high in yacon syrup. FOS resist breakdown by enzymes in the human digestive system and reach the colon without being digested. This means that yacon syrup is very low in calories (about 20 calories per tablespoon). FOS also acts as a soluble fiber, which increases stool bulk to help prevent and control constipation.

Disclosure: I received free products to review.

Thrifty home theater products that’ll elevate your entertainment enjoyment

With an array of major sporting and entertainment events on the horizon, home theater enthusiasts and sports buffs alike are scrambling to ensure their home entertainment systems are up to par--but without breaking the bank. With this home theater system scramble in mind,, an industry-leading retailer of home theater-related solutions, spotlights this array of budget-friendly products to help optimize the at-home entertainment experience.

Home Theater Wire Management Kit ($45.00)
Create a showroom-quality Home Theater setup. This kit gives you what you need to connect a variety of peripherals like gaming systems, satellite, recording devices, and audio without having to sacrifice your d├ęcor. It includes cord winders, clips, cable ties, a label maker and a complete raceway management system to discretely route cables around your home.

Kableflags Cable Identification Tags ($5.87)
Kableflags are the simplest and most efficient way to make sure you never unplug the wrong cable again. These tags ensure you can easily identify cables to avoid blind troubleshooting. They are fully adjustable and fit just about any size cable. Made from soft PVC polyvinyl chloride (vinyl), these tags are long lasting and use no adhesive, unlike printed labels.

Smart Strip Power Saving Surge Protector ($28.59)
The Smart Strips allow you to save money on your electric bills by turning off electronic devices that are not being used. This failsafe method works even when you forget, so your home doesn't waste energy. On average the Smart Strip has been known to save over 260 watts or more per hour to save even more on energy costs.

Wiring Solution Home Theater Cable Manager  ($32.95)
When it comes to a perfect presentation experience, the setup is often just as important as the presentation itself. The Wiring Solution hides wires coming from your flat screen TV, and can be easily painted to blend into any decor. If you're looking for a way to achieve professional-looking results affordably, the Wiring Solution is the perfect solution.

Latching Cable Raceway (Starting at $5.90)
-metallic wiring management systems such as cable raceways are a functional, affordable, attractive solution for wire enclosure applications in commercial, industrial as well as residential environments. Our line of extruded raceways includes a full complement of accessories such as pre-applied adhesive backing, fittings, inside and outside corners so your wire management systems can be 100% customized. All surface raceway parts are made of strong, durable, lightweight, UL 94-VO compliant flame resistant PVC that is also paintable (Latex) to perfectly match walls, ceilings and even baseboards.

Non-Contact Voltage Tester ($20.25)
Many accidental shocks to electrical technicians could be prevented with a 2 second test using a voltage meter like the Klein Tools Non-Contact Voltage Tester. No contact with the bare wire is needed- just place the tip near a device you would like to check for active electricity, and within seconds, the tester will warn you with both a visual and auditory response.

Version 1.4 Certified HDMI Cables (starting at $11.45)
Designed to connect digital sources such as set top boxes, as well as up-convert DVD players, HD DVD players, Blu-ray Disc player, camcorders, personal computers and video game consoles to be compatible with devices such as computer monitors or digital televisions. These advanced HDMI cables are equipped with 3D technology and ready for the next step in digital entertainment.

Monster Video® 1 Component Video Cable ($39.95) 
Monster Video 1 low-loss component video (MV1CV) offers improved performance for the best possible picture. MV1CV features a dual foil and high-purity, high density braided copper shielding to reject interference. A low-density structured foam dielectric ensures low-loss video signal transfer. Component video uses three cables to send red, green and blue signals to provide the sharpest, clearest, best possible picture.

Low Voltage Cable Pass Through Wall Plate (Starting at $2.55)
Having messy, disorganized cables/wires exposed in and around your entertainment center can easily distract from and diminish the enjoyment of your modern home theater. So how do you tackle this messy cable dilemma, and give your home theater the professional finish it deserves? You could use inexpensive wire loom or cable raceway, but you would still have to deal with hiding, painting, and installing these products. By using Datacomm's affordable and easy to install cable pass-through wall plates, you can make those cables disappear without your money or time following suit.

DataComm Surround Sound Wallplate ($25.20)
Today's home theaters are complicated systems that consist of multiple components and wiring, which can quickly lead to disarray and tangles of wires that distract you from your entertainment and enjoyment. Installing surround sound wall plates in your home allows you to skip the long, unsightly runs of cables, and give your home theater the clean and professional finish that it deserves.

My review:

of the above products, mentioned - I received two of them. I got an HDMI cable:


and the Kableflags:

I'm excited to use these products. I think I am going to use the HDMI cable on the new TV we got for the kitchen. And I want to try using the Kableflags on some stuff my son has plugged in. He has a TV and PlayStation and some other stuff going on back there so these will really come in handy.

Check out the website to purchase these and the other products mentioned. What one would you like?

I received free products to facilitate this post.

WW School Zone

I've noticed some weird signs around my town (or what I think are anyway)

Because my son is a Senior this year & he has enough credits, he can get out early everyday. So I have to pick him up in the afternoon. 

I go by this sign - it is not outside his school - but the "Education Center."  40 MPH in a school zone. Then end of school zone you can go back to going 55 MPH.

Ozeri 360 Tower Fan Review

The following was sent complimentary for review:

I recently received the Ozeri Tower fan as pictured above to review. First, though below is some product info taken from their Amazon page:

Boasting unrivaled technology, the Ozeri 360 Tower Fan oscillates at 60, 90, 120, or 360 degrees for partial to complete air circulation with 3 whisper quiet speed settings. Utilizing advanced cylindrical motion technology with over 200 noise-reducing micro-blades, the 360 Tower Fan achieves remarkable airflow velocity while remaining impressively quiet. The 360 Tower fan offers 3 fan whisper quiet speed settings for customized airflow. It also features 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort with up to 360 degree complete oscillation for timely relief on a sweltering summer day or for refreshing circulation all year long. The Ozeri 360 Tower Fan features an 8-hour timer that can be programmed in 30 minute increments with ease, and a multi-colored LCD that displays all fan functions and the room temperature. All of the Fan's features, including programmable timer, are easily controlled via the included extended-range remote or via the fan’s front control buttons. The 360 Tower fan features a dismountable design that only requires the hand assembly of fan base using 3 included screws, with no special tools required. Satisfaction guaranteed.

My take on the product:
Funny thing is this actually was delayed on the delivery by a couple of days, because there was a snow storm. So needless to say the weather wasn't really conducive to using this at the time.

Tuesday, though we had a touch of Spring and it got up to about 78 degrees here. So when I came home, I found it in my son's room. He said he was hot and wanted to use it.

I asked him some questions about how it worked and how he liked it and this is what he said:

"I like it, works great, 10 out of 10 stars, would purchase again."

- which may not be a bad idea. to get at least one more. Because I know when it starts getting hot again, my house is like a furnace and although we do have air conditioning, I don't love to run it all the time & don't keep it going all night long either.

Some more thoughts:
I have had some other fans like this in the past. And the last one I remember made so much noise it was ridiculous! Especially if you wanted to use it while you're sleeping. The Ozeri 360 Tower fan is so quite you can hardly hear it.

My son also said he likes how it can turn 360 degrees, also the little remote it comes with is cool. And as far as assembly - it is easy - my daughter put it together for me!

This fan has a lot of cool features that I am looking forward to discovering more about as needed. Or I probably could ask my son, because he probably has it all figured out. Check it out for yourself!

Buy it: Click here to to purchase one of these. (it is actually showing currently out of stock - but you can add it to your wish list for when it comes back in!)

disclose: I got this free to review - all opinions are my own.

Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask #powerofplants

I want to tell you a little more about one of the products I got in the J'Adorevoxbox I posted about last week. Check that post here if you like.

It is called  Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask.


Here is some product info:

Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask:

Treat your skin to deep cleansing with this mineral-rich clay mask. Designed for use on normal skin, the unscented, hypo-allergenic formula absorbs excess oil and deeply cleanses skin. The oceanic clay exhibits a negative electrical charge, which helps to draw out impurities without overdrying, skin is left looking clearer whilst feeling softer and smoother. Willowbark, a key ingredient in the Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask, is nature’s champion clarifier. The bark of the willow tree is a natural source of salicylic acid which helps to refine skin texture and actively target imperfections.
How to Use: Shake well before use. Apply to cleansed skin and leave to dry for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water

My review:

I tried this out when I first got it, at first I was a little surprised about it. That is because when I first squirted some out onto my hand it was kinda watery. I thought that was odd, since I think other mud type masks I've tried are very thick.

So I wasn't sure how this was going to work. You can go to my Instagram account to see pictures I took. The first one is when it is just applied (I took this one back in Feb. when I first got it) Check out picture HERE.

Despite my first misgivings about this being watery, once you apply it to your face it does go on smoothly and evenly. And coats your face rather nicely. Go here for second picture (I redid a mask the other day so I could get a couple more pictures) This picture shows what happens while the mask is drying. You get sort of a camo look - lol

The third step is the drying of the mask - this literally takes no more then 10-15 min. to dry. After that you can wash off with a face cloth and warm water. Check out this picture on Instagram of my mask once it was completely dry.

Once I rinsed this off, I noticed how refreshed and smooth my skin felt. It really works well and is a very nice facial mask.

You can purchase this on their website BootsUSStore or at major retailers such as Walgreens and Target. ARV $9.39 (good deal!)

Also find them on Facebook & Twitter

 I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

She says she has dark circles under her eyes and has been using it for that. It goes on smoothly and is a quality product. 

One thing I also noticed when reading about it is that it is not tested on animals and that is also very important to me. So that is awesome.
